country come together in president obama's second term? that's ahead as we continue our special coverage of this inauguration weekend. >>> is there such a thing, is there a second term curse? gloria borger is back with us along with a couple guys who saw their guy sworn in for two terms. let's talk about second terms. paul, i want to start with you first. your president came before his so we'll go in order and gloria can interrupt at any moment. >> i will. >> look, your president, bill clinton, had a great economy and then the monica lewinsky scandal and impeachment came along. and his agenda went off the tracks. your president, the opposition to the iraq war was growing. he won re-election but it kept growing and katrina came along and it undermined his second term. what lesson did you learn from a second term that could help this president? >> well, the president's problem was personal, not policy -- >> there are so many inappropriate things i could think to answer that question. >> but it's a completely different thing for that reason. but -- >> he got a budget. >> he got a balanced b
. these the number of public schools with armed personnel. 28,300 to around the country. and the reaction, the obama administration, my god, the nra has lost its mind to even suggest such a thing. lou: it is interesting because just by coincidence, i was in israel when the new town shooting took place, and the next morning hours touring the facility where they train security guards for their schools. they put those guards in after that school shooting in the 1970 and worked. this country after columbine president clinton got funding for the cops in school programs which pays for many of those two. : thousand police. in other localities, private firms, and school boards volunteers provide security. why was it a smart idea when the israelis did it and a reasonable idea when bill clinton endorsed it and the insane idea when we suggested it? the fact is that america's parents want their kids protected, and there are two real basic problems here. what is the breakdown of our mental health system. almost all of these shooters are people he should not be allowed to possess any firearm. we have been urging
conference. >> obama and clinton believed china and other countries resisting a pollution standards agreement were meeting in secret. >> president obama and secretary clinton were talking kind of alone, you know, in some hallway and he said let's go. and she said, let's go. >> so they kind of barged in. >> they kind of barged in. they said hey, guys, what are you doing? >> we're here. >> what's going on here. we're here and we got the deal done. >> secretary clinton has logged just shy of a million miles as secretary of state and usually on board, cnn foreign affairs reporter aleece labbit. >> this is the press cabin where the journalists or traveling press sit. as we move forward it's different. >> that's where all the action takes place. a lot of communications equipment. this right here is the line of death. >> what's the line of death? >> this is where all the classified material is and so they always say to journalists can't come in because they have this classified bag, but let's cross it. >> let's cross it. >> and this is where the secretary does all of her business. this is -- >> this

[ male announcer ] one pill each morning. 24 hours. zero heartburn. >>> welcome back. everybody, president obama was sworn in for a second term earlier this afternoon. he got some big hugs from his wife and his two daughters. there are some people who are not so happy that he won the election. thak a look at the poll numbers, a new cnn/"time" magazine/orc poll, shows the president's approval rating is 55%, 43% disapprove of the way he's doing his job. br
's national day of service. people all over the country are doing the same thing the obamas are doing right now, volunteering in their community on this martin luther king holiday weekend. this national day of service going on here on the national mall where the president is -- it's an elementary school. >> it is an elementary school here in washington. i believe he's doing a little bit similar to his service project last time around four years ago because i believe he had a paint brush in his hand that time. but it looks like he's helping -- what i've seen so far, helping to complete an overhaul of a school in washington, d.c. he has some very good volunteers. i believe they are with city year and they're working to, you know, maybe do a little painting, a little varnishing of a bookcase, john. >> it is the burrville elementary school in northeast washington there. i have to say mrs. obama sporting a little more form than the president painting that bookcase. >> she also has a pair of gloves. maybe he's worried about getting dirty. we lost the shot. that's okay. a lot going on today in the
i'm looking at is the country's expectations. when president obama was first inaugurated, he became -- and a lot of his staffers will tell you this -- sort of a victim of the high expectations that the public had for him. now the expectations are kind of lower, so the folks in the administration are saying, well, if the expectations are lower, maybe we can overperform a little instead of underperforming like people thought we did last time around. so they're kind of looking for the glass half full part of this. equation. >> one of the things going on beneath numbers indicates a sort of tsunami of hyperpartisanship that this administration has tried to operate in. it's a stark partisan divide. 76% of democrats thinks things are going well in the country. only 28% of republicans feel that way. so that is really a reminder of the divides at work. >> i think what we don't know right now, one of the big mysterie mysteries, is where this economy is truly going. we hear from a number of people like jamie dimon has been arguing, we get a grand bargain this economy will take off. a lot of pe
if they side with the president of the united states think about what president obama has done for the progressive movement in this country in the democratic party. how can you not stand with him on this? how much more information do these lawmakers need? have we not covered it enough? other democratic senators with high ratings from the national rifle association have also refused to say if they support the president's package. max baucus of montana, senator heidi heitkamp of north dakota, senator johnson of south dakota. senator donnelley of i7d ind. senator begich of alaska, senator manchin of west virginia, senator tester of montana. however, senator mark warner spoke out in favor of the president's plan and said he believes it has bipartisan support. those senators all have a or a-plus ratings from the national rifle association. reid has a b rating. these senators know they will lose their high rating and maybe become a target with the nra if they vote for a sensible assault weapons ban. you see, we had the assault weapons ban back in 1994, but we're so screwed up in wash
years ago was around the fact that barack obama had been elected the first black president of this country. how much of that sense still exists now four years later or how much of it is just part of the past and now we're moving on? >> i don't think it's part of the past and we're moving on. people are cherishing that and looking for the next four years to be stronger in terms of action and inexclusiveness for all people. i think it's going to be a good four years. >> how do you bring the congressmen together. >> what is a thing that's going to make people who don't really seem to necessarily know each other, i was surprised when i heard that the other day from a senator. senator mansion i think said it how do you bring people not only to know each other, but to want to work toward a common goal? >> well many of us are trying to bring people together. one of the things that i'm doing as part of an organization called faith in politics, every first weekend in march, we take a group of democrats and republicans, leade erers of the house and senate on a trip. we take them to a
address. when barack obama appeared four years ago the country did not know him, the beginning of his presidency. now for bet he and worse people know him. they know his strengths, weaknesses, the areas he's achieved and failed. it's more setting a brief mood for the country coming together. we have all this behind us. we're going to look ahead and then we'll get into the knitty gritty of our plans. >> second inaugurals are interesting things. some presidents have chosen to look backwards to talk about their accomplishments in the first term. others have not. george w. bush did not talk much about his first term but decided to make a bold foreign policy statement. what are the considerations that go into choosing what you say. >> when you look at the history of inaugural addresses there are some determined by the trajectory of history. john f. kennedy gave a speech that codified the moral commitments of the cold war. ronald reagan's first inaugural speech was an economic speech. the context was inflation which was a threat to the country at that time. but most of others, bush was like
other nations, eight countries had had citizens there also trying to resolve the status of their people. the white house issued a statement last night saying that the obama administration was in close contact with the algerian government, but still trying to, "gain a fuller understanding of what exactly happened there and what the situation is now." that's really where it stands. still trying to determine from the algerians what transpired. they cracked down on these terrorists very quickly. the loss of the hostages' lives. but this is something that the algerians clearly wanted something to make clear. they were going to handle themselves and they handled it as they saw fit. randi? >> but they're certainly getting a lot of criticism coming out yesterday for trying to launch this attack to try to end it. what are the rest of the world and the leaders saying about this assault and how it all went down? >> that is exactly the question. publicly they are saying that absolutely the violence was the result of the attack by this group of militants, but right now what this poses for intelligen

as high as the rest of the country in other states like arizona, arkansas, idaho, iowa, obama, the list goes on. those rates are going to go up 65 and 100% according to this study we were looking at. how do you think that gets observed? -- absorbed? >> the good news is that we saw last year for example health care costs overall only went up 4%. it now had three years in a row with single-digit growth instead of double digit growth in health care expenditures we've seen year after year in the last generation. there is some evidence the system is getting costs under control that will help keep premiums down. you said 50% over five years, that is a 10% increase over five years each year. in none of premium increases the last 15 to 20 years. there is no significanactual increase. what we don't know is how the obama reforms on the cost side will bring costs down as more people come in to the system. there will be more unhealthy people in the system, a lot more healthy people in the system bringing more revenue for the insurance companies as well. we have to give reform time. this report was
, on the very day the country set aside to honor dr. king, mlk day, barack obama, america's first african-american president, will take the oath of office for the second time. i spoke with a close friend of dr. king's and a speechwriter who contributed to dr. king's speech. >> it brings back some memories of 50 years ago. the "i have a dream" speech, the march on washington, probably would not have occurred but for the demonstrations in birmingham, alabama. the key to understanding the history before the "i have a dream" speech and the march on washington is birmingham, alabama. that's what turned -- that's what elevated the conscience of the nation. it's almost -- i was thinking about, it was america seeing a -- seeing young african-american boys and girls being slammed up against the wall by fire hoses and bitten by police dogs. those who were participating in dr. king's effort to desegregate birmingham, alabama. that raised the question nationally as to what kind of country are we. and it -- and so what dr. king and other -- other people in the civil rights movement did in organizing t
have got in america very few unifying ceremonies and we are in a political system and a country that in certain ways is more fractured than ever. here's one opportunity you wouldn't want to miss. the other thing is that i think we forget sometimes what it was like when barack obama came in. you know, the banking system and the economy were both falling apart, two wars were going on, not doing well, other problems. he didn't have the luxury that most presidents have to come in and say these are the four things i think are important to achieve to take the country forward. so in a way we should get more of an idea from this speech of who he is, what he wants to do than we did the first time. >> what do you expect, james, to be addressed tomorrow? >> well, i think it will be very hopeful and i think that there will be more policy sort of subtly laden in this speech about what the secretary needs to be. i think there will be stuff in there about commonsense gun safety, about immigration reform, the things i think this immigration wants to really try to get done in a second term. i ag

or more about getting changing control in this country? >> i think it's probably both. while they would very much like to embarrass republicans, democrats would always lector and bearish republicans, especially the obama democrats, but in this case in this circumstance that think this is about a way to achieve maximal controlled on firearms, probably expand background checks, perhaps expand into private sales between individuals, do whatever they can to restrict, regulate the sale and use of guns that executive power allow. gerri: here is what the president had to say in his press conference about what he would like to see in that package. >> what you can count on is that the things that i have said in the past, the belief that we have tough starter background cat -- stronger background checks, can do a much stronger job in terms of keeping these magazine clips with high capacity out of the hands of folks should not have them, assault weapons ban that is meaninul, those are things that continue to believe make sense. gerri: what is interesting, the president continues to push around wit
